The Mac-Java burn

2010/10/31

You know, all that talk about Apple wanting to soon dump java does have something that it being over looked. Given what Red Hat did for OpenJDK with IcedTea, people seem to have forgotten about SoyLatte, the BSD-Port of OpenJDK that was started on a Mac (I am being rather serious, the first few builds were for the Mac OS X). It continues to this day with very little notice… but hey, it’s better than being left to the cold.

Update: Well it’s offical, Apple Inc. is done with Java… sort of. They are now participants in OpenJDK, a rather unexpected announcement given their wariness of the GPL. We’ll see what good comes from this.
